We will kick off this event with a welcome session featuring our keynote speaker followed by educational sessions on various topics. Throughout the event, the Relaxation Room will be offering many relaxation therapies and healing arts such as a water color demonstration, reiki, chair massage, aromatherapy, hand pampering treatments and more.
